Overall this guitar is nice to play fingerstyle against slapping, which I have given up.
I use this bass for blues, jazz shuffle, when I do actually get to play.
The sound is clear, full, sustain is really good thanks to the neck-through construction.
with my H & K BK100 I sound a bit fat, and I choked it up with a compressor and a little reverb.
I particularly appreciate the high mids and trebles of this bass.
I have had this beast since 2009.
I tried a lot of 5 strings, but I have fallen under the spell of sound and color.
sound in the treble and bass fullness. Big sustain, Manufacturing quality, The bridge has independent string adjustment, Ease of play.
The weight is a bit tiring in the long run, A humbucker for the neck pick-up might have been good.
I pay € 800 for this bass in 2009. I am looking for a Jazz Bass now.
